Brian Flanagan sends us this report of the First Annual Air Canada Scottish Reunion -
On Wednesday, September 27, 2017, 53 ex-employees including 23 Pionairs and partners from Glasgow Sales Office and Prestwick Airport assembled at the Ellisland House Hotel in Ayr only a few miles from Prestwick Airport.
Being true to life, before the committee of Brian Flanagan, Liz Hosie and Avril Miller had finished setting up, the first arrivals were assembling. The private dining-room and the bar were soon resounding to cries of recognition and shouts of disbelief. Included in the group were ex colleagues from Toronto, Montreal and London England. As the lunch was sponsored by the Canadian Pionairs, the UK Pionairs were represented by Jack Morath and his wife Aureen on behalf of our UK director Mike Judkins.
At 12:30 Chairman Brian Flanagan, who was a Duty Manager at Heathrow having been in Glasgow as a Passenger Agent then Res Supervisor and Sales Rep before moving to London, thanked the Canadian Pionairs for their kind sponsorship and wished all who had made effort to attend an enjoyable day.
A superb three course lunch was enjoyed by all and this was followed by a thank you from Liz Hosie, who was a Senior Passenger Agent in Res/CTO then Sales Manager, for the invaluable help from Director Mike Judkins and Queen of Finance Margaret Finch of the UK Pionairs. She then introduced Roy Keane our ex Glasgow colleague who had travelled from Toronto, who proceeded to entertain us for 30 minutes with memories of the good old days. He reminded us of many hilarious events, which some of us might have wanted to forget.
He rounded off to a standing ovation with the message :
There were many photo calls and renewal of friendships and promises of further get-together's. The committee have been overwhelmed by the positive feedback and thanks from everyone who attended.
